Do I need to provide a deposit?
“Where other camps require large deposits and payments in full by the beginning of their programs, some as early as May 1st we never close our enrollment. Our online registration is set up so you only register and pay for the day/days of camp you can afford at that specific time of registration. We understand cash flow can be a concern in the current economic climate and that a lot of our parents only know their work schedules from week to week”. Don’t wait too long because the cost per day increases as we get Closer to camp and we will be limitting our daily camper enrollment to 250 per day.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Our online registration system allows you to pay by credit card from the privacy of your home at any time of day or night. (We accept Amex, MC, VISA & Discover. Cash and
cashiers checks are only accepted in Season.) Any campers having discounted tuition day rates must have a valid credit/debit card on file for payment at time of registration

Registration What forms of registration do you offer?
Adventureland only offers online registration for all of its camps. There are no registration forms to fill out and mail back. Our on-line registration lets you take care of all your registration needs from the comfort and privacy of your home at any time that’s convenient for you. It also helps the Environment buy cutting down on paper. You can even extend your time at Adventureland throughout the season, all we require is 7 days notice for any additional days of attendance and 2 days notice for anymake up days for missed attendance. Approval is based on enrollment numbers and not guaranteed. 2020 online registration link https://thriva.activenetwork.com/Reg4/Form.aspx?IDTD=6207616&RF=11910813
Can I register even though I don’t know the exact dates my child will be attending?
Yes. Register for the number of days you want to attend and when you know the exact schedule get in touch with Lisa or Brynn at email@example.com and she will make the changes internally for you.
Do I have to purchase all of the days of camp my child will be attending at one time?
No. You have the flexibility of purchasing days of camp as you can afford them,but the day rate increases as we get closer to camp. You will be able to log in as a returning user and add as many days as you want at the current rate. You will need to get in touch with Lisa or Brynn at (firstname.lastname@example.org) ff you need to change the days you have already registered for. You can also email Lisa or Brynn and have her add days for you.
What should I do if the calculated price in the online shopping cart is incorrect? Go back to the “days portion of the online registration and only choose 1DAY OF CAMP then get in touch with Lisa or Brynn at (email@example.com). By doing this you will at least be in the system and not have to redo all your information. When getting in touch with Lisa make sure you have the exact number of days you want to purchase and if possible the dates. ** The discount is taken in the shopping cart
portion of the registration.
bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb Are there discounts available? We offer several discount opportunities based on date of purchase and classifications. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out about our: “New” Camper, “New”1st Responder and “New”Parochial School student discounted tuition rates. Where other camps give you price breaks based on the longer amount of time you are willing to commit to, (all 8 weeks verses 4weeks) we base our discounts on WHEN you purchase your day/days of camp. Not everyone can fit 8 weeks of camp into their schedule nor do they need 5 days a week of child-care. We feel a family shouldn’t be penalized for taking a vacation, for sending their child to a specialty sports camp or wanting to let their little ones spend a day a week with Nanna and Pop Pop. Our day rate increases as we get closer to camp but even our most expensive “in season” rate is about 50% less than other comparable area camps.
Food and Drink Do you provide lunch?
No we do not, but we will refrigerate your child’s lunch and any snacks you provide. Please make sure all lunch containers are clearly marked with his/her name. No brown bags please. Adventureland is unable to heat any lunches.
Will camp be providing a snack during the day?
Adventureland will provide an afternoon snack and plenty of iced cold water throughout the day. We also have our very own “Snack Shack” available for your child to purchase additional snacks and drinks during lunch, snack time and free swim. Every thing is priced $1.00 At our afternoon Friday pool parties we serve pizza, ice cream and water ice for snack. You still need to send a lunch with your child on Fridays. We have many water stations filled with unlimited amounts of iced cold water that our campers can enjoy all day. Adventureland uses municipal water supplied by the Aqua Water Company so there is no ‘funny well water taste’.
Transportation Do you provide transportation?
Sorry, we don’t provide transportation. We feel the added benefit of Self Transportation is our ability to see and speak with the parents/caregivers of all our campers daily. It reallycements our camper community. We will be happy to provide names of families in your area if you wish to car pool.
Self-Transport Arrival and Dismissal
How does pick up and drop off work for Base Camp and Mini Camp? It couldn’t be easier, our pick up and drop off is extremely efficient.
Base Camp and Extended Care morning drop-off: You will slowly pull down our driveway and stop under our over hang where staff members will get your child out of your car and direct your child to their group. There is no need for you to park or get out of your car unless of course you want to. Base Camp and Extended Care pick-up works in a similar way. When you slowly pull down the driveway you will be stopped by our staff, asked the name of the camper/campers who you are here to pick up. We will then bring your child/children to you. There is no need to park and get out of your car, unless of course you want to. All of our camps start their day at 9:15 with drop off starting at 8:45 All of our camps end their day at 3:45 with pickup starting at 4:00. Any camper needing to be picked up before 3:45 needs to give prior notice. All campers must be picked up by 4:30 or be charged a late pickup fee of $10.00 for regular dismissal and $10.00 for every 15 minutes you are late for extended care.
What if I need to pick up my child early, or drop them off at camp late?
It’s no problem to pick up early or drop off late, simply stop by the office and we’ll page your child for you to sign them out or deliver your child to their group when late. Please make the effort to let us know at morning drop-off if you require early pick up.
Attendance, Scheduling and Activities
What attendance options are available? “We are the only camp I know that operates on a DAY RATE”.
Where other camps require a minimum attendance (most being a minimum 4 full weeks) we have no such restrictions. Come 1 day or all 39 Days (we are always closed 1 day,every season for July 4th). We allow what ever works best for your family. Operating on a Day Rate makes allowances for so many different scenarios: -Do you only need 3 days a week, for 3 weeks? NOT A PROBLEM!
-Do you need 2 days one week, and 3 days the next? NOT A PROBLEM! -Does your work schedule change every week? NOT A PROBLEM! -Is it Monday and your babysitter cancelled for Tuesday! NOT A PROBLEM! Just go online and if there is room you can purchase tomorrow’s day of camp. -Are you registered for Mon. Wed. and Fri. this week, but need to come Mon. Tues. and Thurs.? NOT A PROBLEM! Just email us the change request and if there is room we can change your dates. -Do you need to miss a scheduled day of camp this week? NOT A PROBLEM! Just email us what day you want to use as a makeup 2 days prior to attendance and if their is room we will make the substitution.
What are some of the Activities offered at Adventureland? “We are the only camp I know that runs a 39DAY SCHEDULE instead of the outdated 5 day.” The 5 day schedule means each day of the week’s schedule is repeated weekly. Our campers have individualized attendance needs. This means that a cookie cutter scheduling technique couldn’t work. Suppose we only had geo-caching on Mondays and your child didn’t attend on Mondays. Your child would be missing out on a great activity. We do have a weekly template we work off of, however, but each day’s schedule is decided only a few days ahead of time. This innovative technique also allows us to add some large comprehensive activities to our curriculum, such as Rapid Building, Shipwreck, and Fishing Frenzy. The flexibility of our 39 day schedule also means we are not held hostage by inclement weather. Please check out our Weekly SchedulingTemplate below:
bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb Our weekly template is:
Mondays through Thursdays are Traditional Camp- Our Campers spend
their whole day with their assigned groups doing all of the traditional camp activities, such as Boating, Fishing, Sports, Playgrounds, Ga-Ga, Art, Nature, Outdoor Living, Geo-Caching, Mini Golf, 32 ft climbing wall, Swimming. Fridays are Special Events/Themed Pool Parties - Our Campers spend the 1st Â˝ of the day with their assigned groups doing traditional camp activities. The 2nd Â˝ of the day is spent preparing for and participating in our themed pool parties. Some themes include Pirates of the Swamp, Disney, Luau, Country Hoedown, Pajama Party and favorite Super Hero to name a few. k &1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th,7th,8th &9th boating * * kayaking * * * * swimming * * * * * * nature * * * * * * art * * * * * * geo caching * * * * outdoor cooking * * * * * * outdoor living * * * * climbing wall * * * * zip line * * archery * * * * wii * * * * * * rapids * * * fishing * * * * * playgrounds * * * * * * frisbee golf * * * mini golf * * * * * * world cup * * *

No medications are allowed to be in your childâ€™s bag or our locker rooms.
Do you require health forms?

What are the age ranges of campers? Our Base Camp ages are 5 thru 15.
How many children are in a group?
On average on any day of Base Camp there are 10 to 15 campers in a group.
How are campers grouped?
Except for our youngest campers (5 & 6 yrs) our groups are same sex and based on the age/grade of the child.
Can siblings be grouped together?
Only if the age and sex of the siblings allows it.
What is the Counselor to Camper ratio?
In our youngest group (5yrs) we have a 1 to 3 counselor to camper ratio. All other groups it’s 1 to 7
All my child’s friends are in another group, can we change groups?
As long as your friends are of a similar age we can almost always place your child in the same group as them. Please make sure you note the names of the friends you wish to be with on your application, and ask them to do the same.
Can I have the names and numbers of other campers in my child’s group? Many parents ask for these items to plan birthday parties, sleepovers, etc. Unfortunately Adventureland IS NOT permitted to give the names and phone numbers of camper families to anyone. If you wish to invite other campers to a party, simply give the invitations to your child to pass out.

What to, and what not to bring to camp What To Bring to Camp: Campers and parents are always concerned about what’s needed for camp. In general the philosophy of “Less is more” applies when packing your bag for camp. The following is a list of items that will help your child have an enjoyable summer: *Clothing that can get dirty. *Sneakers or other comfortable shoes for hiking, adventure course climbing, sports playing, etc. *Old sneakers for exploring creeks and streams. *Campers may wear flip-flops and pool shoes at pool only. *Wear weather appropriate clothing like raincoats and sweatshirts for rainy weather. *Bathing suit along with plastic bag for packing up wet bathing suit in the afternoon. Your child can wear his/her bathing suit to camp. *Towel. Please put your child’s name on all items including towels and lunch boxes. *Sunscreen. Please apply before coming to camp, but send extra for reapplying throughout the day *Large backpack or duffel bag Adventureland provides water, and an afternoon snack. Adventureland also provides life Jackets for the pool and lake activities. We also provide Sports equipment, but if your children wish to bring in their own equipment, like a favorite glove or fishing rod and tackle boxe. They may do so. No knives are allowed in tackle boxes. Please clearly label everything with indelible marker. Include on the labeling your child’s name and group so we can return any lost items to you as soon as possible. What Not to Bring: One thing to remember is that the more your child brings to camp, the more they are capable of losing, and Adventureland Day Camp will not be held responsible for any items lost, stolen or damaged while involved with camp. With that in mind, there are some items which are not needed and will not be tolerated at camp. Please do not allow your child to bring the following items to camp: *Keeping with our outdoor nature curriculum please do not bring any electronics (CD Players, *ipods, mp3 players, portable radios, gameboys ord electrectronic gamecs of any kind) *We do not allow campers to carry cell phones on their person or in their bag while at camp. Cell phones need to be turned in at arrival to be stored in the office. Any camper caught with a cell phone may be suspended from camp. *No Toys of any kind. *Magic or Pokemon cards *Magic or Pokemon cards will be allowed at camp when there are rainy days. In that situation, we ask that you make sure the cards are in a clearly labeled box or rubber band and immediately turned into your counselor for storage in the office. Knives or weapons of any kind
